Spellbound is a documentary film by Jeffrey Blitz that involves spelling bees that would win the National Spelling Bee contest.

Back Cover Summary

Spellbound follows the lives of eight young Americans who share one goal: to win the National Spelling Bee.

Think this sounds boring? Prepare to be blown away. The Bee is as intense a competition as Olympic match, and for the spellers and their families, the stakes are just as high. The unbearable pressure becomes even more extraordinary as it is felt by ordinary teenagers.

Watch as the Bee becomes a dramatic backdrop for the bigger story about kids and families today as we discover that within the roller coaster ride the National Spelling Bee can be found the heart of America.
